In an X – ray tube, electrons accelerated through a potential difference of 15, 000 volts strike a copper target. The speed of the emitted X – ray inside the tube is . . . . . . . . . . .m/s

The speed of X – rays is always 3 x 108 m/s in vacuum. It does not depend on the potential differences through which electrons are accelerated in an X – ray tube.
Note : All electromagnetic waves propagate at 3 x 108 m/s in vacuum.
